@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2016 - 03:01 PM)

Say, give us all the Tim Horton's and about 700 kilos of Coffee Crisps and we'll take all the cold. How about it?

@  BlackMax : (06 December 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Well hey, let's not be hasty. Canada and the US are allies, we're all friends here on this board, maybe we can negotiate.

Looking...exactly like what you imagine Skywarp would look like.

I don't care, I still want him.

So, all of the Takara mainline guys are getting minicons that transform into weapons instead of mech-tech weapons? God damn I'm. going to import this entire line, for that reason alone. Those guys look awesome.

I have to agree with you here. Prime Starscream is too singular a character to me. Though I admit it'd be an interesting test in animation to bring in another Seeker with the exact same body who is say bold and belligerent. It's Starscream's body language that makes the character and I'd be curious to see them do something different.

Yup Hug Hasbro's Prime line. I'm skipping it entirely for the TakaraTomy versions. The extra minicons are well worth the $10 more I'll pay for them.

Skywarp is very pretty. Right now HLJ has the Deluxes on preorder for roughly $21 and the Voyagers for twice that. Preordered them all. I was considering passing on any repeat characters but the Microns sold me.

Those are all really cool, but I just don't know about the extra trouble of collecting the Japanese Prime line just to get them. Depends on if the figures of the show characters themselves are better looking to make it more worth it. This random, but fairly extensive Mini-Con thing is one of the most noteworthy reappearances in awhile of both beasts and Targetmasters at the same time, but Hasbro possibly isn't participating at all? That's very weird.

After consideration...had I know that there would definitely be a deluxe Starscream redeco as Skywarp I might have consented to buy that instead of Screamer and then hold out for the Voyager Starscream mold.


Although we don't know for sure that Hasbro will do Skywarp....yet. And the deluxe Starscream is worth owning either way.

AM-14 Decepticon Beacon(Also has a 400yen Legion version). I wonder who that is? Also voyager Breakdown(Blakedown, heh) and Deluxe Knock-Out are listed, along with Legion Commander Dread Wing(800yen, I assume that's the commander price point) and 400 yen Legion Evac(eBack). No Wheeljack listed though, except for the legion version with the spaceship.

Anyone else notice most of them turn into what are essentially each character's weapon from the show? Bulkhead's blaster, Cliffjumper's 'horns', Ratchet's sword, Arcee's tonfa blade, Bumblebee's pulse-gun, and Megatron's cannon?

Let's just hope that doesn't mean the ones with humanoid robot modes don't turn into smaller versions of themselves like the Gashapon Microns do.

It's the Vehicon.

I gotta say between Hasbro's Prime RID line and Takara's Prime RID line it's definitely a case of "HasbRow suxxors Takara roxxors" or what have you.

I understand Minicons would have likely been too expensive at the price point for Hasbro, but Takara's Prime RID Deluxes are only 2,000 Yen, which is 940 Yen cheaper than the United figures that TT just came out with.

It shows that Takara is really trying to push this line to be a success with cheaper price and really cool Minicons - meanwhile Hasbro is offering arguably inferior versions due to inferior weapons (in comparison).

I'm almost wondering if the Takara figures will have the lightup features or not, if they're removed it will probably make them better as they wouldn't have random clear bits like on Optimus and Starscream.

I think that's one of the best aspects of them, that they're mimicking weapons on the show that likely the figures do not include.

That's what I'd planned on doing. I liked the idea of Starscream and Skywarp looking at least a little different this time around. But then I started to fear that the Voyager version would be even taller than Megatron, which doesn't work for me.
